A 28-year-old Dracut man is facing multiple charges, including assault and battery on a police officer, after being found hiding in a crawl space in his home.
Brian Sullivan was arrested July 23 after a search warrant and arrest warrant was executed at his home at 58 Tyngsboro Road.

Recognizing the potential danger Sullivan posed and in the wake of several attacks on Bay State Police officers in recent months, several law enforcement agencies joined forces to execute the warrant, including the Dracut Police, Lowell Police Department's Vice Unit and Criminal Bureau, the Middlesex County Sheriff's Office Fugitive Task Force and the NEMLEC SWAT and K-9 team.

After an extensive search of the property, Sullivan was found hiding a false wall crawl space of the home.

"This was a potential dangerous situation that came to a close safely because of the relationship this department has with Lowell Police, Middlesex County Sheriff's Office and NEMLEC SWAT," Dracut Police Chief Peter Bartlett said, in a press release. "Our community is a safer place because of the tenacity of the detectives assigned to apprehend this individual and the teamwork involved in taking a wanted felon off the street."

ted for a slew of charges including trafficking cocaine and assault and battery on a police officer was found by police hiding inside a home's false-wall crawl space on Monday, police say.

Sullivan was arraigned Wednesday in Lowell District Court on eight charges, including trafficking in cocaine and assault and battery on a police officer.
